MBW 58; Pick of the week is Acorn
Merlin Mann | Sep 24 2007
Chris reviews the new iPods, screen issues with the Touch, and the trouble with ringtones...
Oh, brother, I was totally high on cold medicine when we did this episode. But, not so high that I couldn't recommend Flying Meat's amazing new Acorn, a stripped-down, and very inexpensive graphics app. It's one my favorite Mac programs of the year.
Like I said on the show, there's so many little things you want to do with screen shots or photos -- just weird little tweaks like Dooce's "Lovely Glow Effect" -- and high-end graphics apps like Photoshop can seem really heavy for the job. Acorn is in the sweet spot for most of what I want to do, and so far it's stood up to every task I've needed. And, the price is sure right at an intro rate of $39.95 (0.057 of an "Alex").
And, for the next show, I'll try to be less medicated. I promise. Unless it's something people like. In which case I'll consider getting wasted. Up to you.
